Xmas cookies

So I baked my first batch of X'mas cookies mainly to send them to friends and to get into the holiday spirit (read: I had nothing better to do!).

A few months ago A talked me into buying some matcha green tea powder so I could make green tea ice cream for him. Now, you must know that match powder is quite expensive and you tend to use very little of it for any recipe. So I was raring to use the powder again and decided to make some green tea cookies - hence the green spirals.

Also made chocolate spirals, checker board cookies - which I have wanted to since forever, m&m cookies and a combination of all of the above.

The chocolate cookie recipe is here.
The other recipes and methodology are here, here and here - but with modified shapes.
